Financing

Joseph A. Lucchese Funeral Home, Inc. is an independently owned business. We are totally dependent upon families we serve for payment by the day of services. We realize the expense of caring for the death of your loved one is often unplanned and unexpected. Our Bronx Funeral Home has established a uniform payment policy to serve all families fairly.  We accept:

  1. Personal funds (cash or check)
  2. Credit cards
  3. Life Insurance Assignment from verified policy
  4. Financing

We now work with Lending USA, a company that offers an affordable funding option for our families. If approved, you may have absolutely no out-of-pocket expense.

Being a small business and the uncertainty regarding estate payments, we are not able to file against estates for payment.

Contact us with any questions.
